Career Objective :
are now somewhere between grade level K and grade 12. You
most likely realize that it will take more education to do
what you want to do, but you're not even sure what that is
yet. Education prepares you for your career, by providing
you with the basics of how to think, communicate and obtain
knowledge. If you don't plan your education properly,
it could limit, or delay your success during your working years. While
there are exceptions of individuals who have succeeded with
minimal education, don't limit yourself! Find ways to
learn either out of, or within the education system!

At this stage, your working experience is probably limited to making your bed, putting out the garbage, mowing the lawn, and hopefully, other more challenging things. We're sure many of you have helped your teachers, or Mom/Dad with computers, or on the Internet. You have to start somewhere and make a point to take steps every year to develop your experience. Experience is a good thing! Even though making your bed seems like a real pain, it is a good start for kids to assume responsibility and develop experience. You want to develop a pattern of taking on more responsibility and increase your willingness to learn. This will not only make your parents very proud and happy, but it will make you feel more confident in yourself and you'll then be better equipped to present yourself to others.
Experience is a very powerful tool. It allows you to develop important characteristics that will help you throughout your life. As you gain experience around the house and out-of-house, try and be aware of the importance of that experience and how best to use it to develop yourself. Try and make the most out of what you learn and use it to move to the next level.
Think of these words as you tackle your experiences; responsibility, decision making skills, confidence, leadership skills and communications skills. We will help you develop an understanding of this "
terminology" and more, as we develop this program. We have created some opportunities for you to gain experience in our " Business Encounter" area.

The Personal section is probably the easiest part of developing your resume, because it is about the things you like to do outside of school and work. This section helps people get to know you as a person, beyond your education and experience. This is an area that is important for you to start working on now. It can start with sports, music, arts & community clubs and evolve over the years as your interests change. Hopefully, your personal development will include taking an interest in your community & in charitable organizations and you will find it rewarding and enjoyable. We have developed the " Community Involvement" section to help you in this area.
